neither. but it is something that caught the eye of thousands. good morning, everyone and welcome to "weekends with alex witt." let's get to what's happening right now out there. as president obama heads back to the u.s., just about 90 minutes or so from now after the final stop on his mideast trip he visited the fables city of petra, jordan, this morning. and one major topic of discussion for the president, the civil war going on in nearby syria, and the massive number of syrian refugees now in jordan. nbc's peter alexander is traveling with the president and joins us from amman. so peter with a good saturday morning to you. how has this trip gone so far for the president in jordan? >> well, right now, alex, the president's enjoying the end of his trip. punctuating it, as you noted, with a trip to the celebrated archaeological site in this country known as petra. the focus of the trip has largely been on the future. but at least for the last couple hours he's focusing on the middle east past. advisers tell me this is actually a place that president obama added to the itinerary. a
of like in the united states, if he can't get something through congress he goes directly to the people? >> i think that'll be part of it. the situation in israel sort of represents one of the fundamental miscalculations of the obama presidency, which was that when he came into office he thought, and a lot of his advisers thought, they'd be able to make a dent there by sheer force of will and personality and by being kind of this unifying figure. and, of course, diplomacy is more complicated than that. and the peace process there has been stalled for years. so i think that the reason they're lowering expectations is because they don't expect that much to happen on this trip. i think he is going there more as a box checking exercise than hoping to make any kind of serious strides in diplomacy. >> i think he's also trying to make up a little bit for the speech in egypt in 2009, caused a little controversy. let me play a little clip. >> so let there be no doubt. the situation for the palestinian people is intolerable. america will not turn our backs on the legitimate palestinian aspiration
brought two props. i brought an original source of light that is about 5,000 years old and something that was invented in the late 19th century. i want to show you how big it is in politics. if we were still in the age of the candle with barack obama and the modern left. first of all, we would have studies how many poor people couldn't afford candles. then we would have a focus on a candle redistribution law. then we would have the candle making union asking to block the making of the electric light. then we would have groups based in san francisco arguing that electric lights will endanger the environment and we'll have at least three lawyers running ads that say you can be killed by electricity. if someone tries to put electricity if n your house call us and we'll sue them for you. both parties are prisoners of the past. they are trapped in the ideas nd mind set. they they are all trapped in the age of candles. the first effort in electric light was 1800. in 189 thomas edson's laboratory had the first successful electric light. it lasted 13.5 hours. within a few months, edson hit a
obama is going through to reassure skeptical israelis about where he stands on iran. >> i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon. that is a redline for us. it's something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world. >> reporter: while he says all options are on the table to stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, the president also wants to convince israeli leaders to allow more time for diplomacy. >> what we're going to be doing is continuing to engage internationally with iran understanding that we've set up the toughest sanctions ever. it's having a significant effect. >> reporter: a tough sell analysts say when israel believes iran is closer to a nuclear weapon than the u.s. does. and the tense relationship between the countries' leaders doesn't help. >> president obama and prime minister netanyahu have had a strained relationship for the last four years. it's difficult to see, but this visit is going to change the underlying dynamic in that relationship. >> here at home president obama putting the fi
something that the brilliant minds of the republican caucus had not been able to do, to win an argument against in president and make president obama look very small. >> megyn: that's an interesting point, bill, forget for a moment your position on drones and the use of them, but rand paul got up and he challenged president obama and wound up getting the answer which was the answer he wanted. and pressured eric holder coming out and saying, okay, no, we won't use drones on american people and you know, we don't have evidence they're an imminent threat to the country so he did score a victory against the obama white house and the accusation is that other republicans didn't have the courage to do it. >> well, i don't think the republicans thought that was important enough issue to fight on and i happen to degree with them on that. he got an a statement, his statements from eric holder. what rand paul should want is congressional legislation, maybe he'll introduce it. look, i admire his political entrepreneurship. i wish more republicans showed the spunk, the nerve, the verve that rand pau
'm wrong, earlier in this conflict, the administration here basically said that that was something of a red line. you know that they were this discouraging any use of chemical weapons but that that would change this game so to speak? >> yeah, well, red lines come and go for the obama administration. we'll see. i think obviously we need hard facts here as to exactly what's going on. i think it's difficult to effect the use of chemical weapons inside syria directly because you're talking about very close circumstances, regimes, civilians, opposition, hard to get in the middle of that, but it is certainly should underline to us the risks that these weapons could come loose, fall into the hands of terrorists or regime officials who would sell them to terrorists and get out of the country. >> we know how hard it has been to get good reports out of syria. it is obviously such a danger zone at this point . what do you think the likelihood and how soon will with we get a good handle what really happened here and perhaps the evidence of these chemical weapons being used? >> well i'm sure tracking th
. for lent, do something. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us, "the ed show" starts right now. >> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson in for ed schultz. president obama makes his first trip to israel and gets caught at an open mic. the love gov makes a comeback in south carolina, and march madness hits the white house. >>> but tonight, i start with washington dropping the ball on protecting our children. >>> this is "the ed show," and as ed would say, let's get to work. >>> it was supposed to change everything. the massacre at sandy hook elementary school was brutal and horrific, it shook us to our core but out of the tragedy, there was a hope something could get done. we americans believe this was the event that would prompt our lawmakers to finally act, yet this is the cover of today's "new york daily news," shame on us. the faces of the murdered 20 children of the elementary school students in newtown, connecticut, surrounding those words. this is how a paper in the nation's largest city is reacting in the nation's country is the ban re
to know president obama the way that i have gotten to know. i think you heard something that is very meaningful. it might have escaped you, but it has not escaped me. the president announced that in addition to all of the aid his administration is providing, including iron dome and defense funding for israel during difficult times, he as announce that we will begin talk is on another 10 year process to ensure american military assistance to israel. this is very significant. i want to express my thanks for everything you have done. i went to thank you for the statement new made. it is very important. i think israelis will judge this by the unfolding events and what is taking place. there is a very simple answer to your question, the gentleman from nbc. this is second term president and third term prime minister. [laughter] >> thank you. [applause] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] [captioning performed by national captioning institute] -- this is president obama's second trip to israel. >> the supplies were to be issued by a brigade and he hospital was to be cre
something, and it is absolutely right to figure out what you did wrong, and the obama people outperformed republicans in a number of ways. the idea that we are on the brink of going out of business is overstated. >> do you think that there is with the report that the chairman put together and if the republican party is willing to commit to reach out, is that the answer to try to expand the party by paying people to put operatives out there, to make that connection, to look for ways to expand the party? >> that is a big part of it. i commend the chairman. it was a very thoughtful, thorough report. it has some good recommendations. the fact is the obama campaign and the democrats did a good job of having people out there. they did that better than we did. they had a presence in all communities you had that you needed to turn out, to win. we need to be in the community year round, cycle through cycle, not just in the last three months of an election. having storefront campaign headquarters and party headquarters, people in the committee all the time is an important part. a lot of the focus h

said. if this does not come to pass, what does the obama administration do about it? the senate is trying to shoot down this tax on a medical device maker. >> the medical device packs is something that is a pretty bipartisan bill. you will not see a lot of bipartisanship there. dagen: brad, final word. do we really know what this will cost us as a nation and individuals? >> we look no further to the entitlements that the government had to perform before obamacare. medicare, renegade is going bust on its own. we created a whole new entitlement program where we could not even administer properly and provide the coverage to those already admitted. it is on a pathway to unsustainability unless something is done to change those programs. i have no confidence that obamacare will have any more success than the two programs i mentioned. dagen: thank you both. the well. connell: senators getting set for a marathon with back-to-back voting. they will be voting on amendments that protect the budgets. dagen: rich edson is live in washington, d.c. with more. rich: most of them are designed t
the great united states of america from becoming greece or spain or perhaps something worse. the sky is falling. we also, on this committee, subcommittee, had a hearing that was entitled the obama administration regulatory war on the economy. very ominous. the sky apparently is falling, notwithstanding the fact that the administration has created about 6 million private sector jobs. today, there is a thing advanced by some, again, not questioning the views of many good faith members, but the theme is that criminals have been unleashed on the american public. the question that has been posed is, is this policy or politics? parenthetically that i believe in my reading of the 22nd amendment, barack obama is constitutionally prohibited from running for office again because he was elected and reelected. i'm not sure how politics could make their way into this discussion from the electoral context. putting that aside, the issue of whether criminals have recklessly been unleashed on the american public is an interesting one. i have about 2220 people who are at issue in terms of their releas
. >> the senate has passed a budget. >> senators pull an all-nighter on capitol hill to pull off something they have not done in years, but was it more show than substance? >>> also, his final day in the middle east and president obama goes back in time, biblical times. >>> and with congress poised for its first fight over gun it is, the white house prepares to ramp up the pressure. i will talk to a connecticut congressman. >>> first, topping political headlines, the senate passed a budget for the first time in four years. like the student these once were, they pull and all-nighter and wrapped up voting around 5 a.m. now, they head off on spring break for two weeks. but all is not necessarily well in the democratic dorm room there were four democratic senators who voted against the budget plan, all of whom are up for re-election and one, frank lautenberg from new jersey, he didn't vote at all. meanwhile, politico reporting senator tim johnson from south dakota not planning to run again in 2014. that puts yet another democratic seat in play. another notable democratic senator planning to st
no you're going to say something in that whatever response to it. thank you very much. it's tough work. even at that. president obama nominated thomas perez as the next labor secretary this morning. some republicans are already voicing concern about this. and jeff flock is live at the white house. i think the senator from louisiana is already saying no way. >> is going to block this in the senate. does not kill the nomination, but it does create some problems for the administration after thomas perez, the president's pick to lead the labor department is at department of justice right now. the head of the civil rights division, the administration points to settlements in the fair housing act, something that he has achieved at the department of justice and the administration basically says they're going to take that and effectively pursue their goals at department of labor. >> he has worked with ceos the labor leaders, federal, state, local government levels. and throughout he understands that our economy works best when the middle class and those working to get into the middle-class hav

immigration reform insist you have to have proof of border security. in the past the government used something called operational control of the border and they have used various indices to measure whether the government was in control of x-many miles along the border with mexico but the obama administration threw that standard out. janet napolitano, homeland security secretary said it was archaic of the they said would come up with a super-duper measure of boarder security called the border security index or bci. two years passed and three years passed and they haven't come up with it. in a hearing before the house border security subcommittee last week the chairman of the committee said, is it ready yet? we really need this for immigration reform? homeland security official said, no, it's not ready yet. and by the way, it won't measure border security. and both republicans and democrats on that subcommittee seemed absolutely stunned. wait a minute, immigration reform depends on this and you will not have a way of measuring. and they said, no? they're back to square one how to measure border

now, the smiles, pomp, circumstance; also president obama visiting what's called the iron dome, that is a u.s.-funded missile defense system that was very successful during the gaza war, something the israelis want to show off and they feel shows u.s.-israeli military cooperation and shows the united states a little bit of what it gets for its $3 billion in aid here to israel. the president obviously is meeting with leaders while he's here. he's also speaking directly to the israeli people who do not have a great approval rating for him. a recent poll in israel showed only 10% of israelis said they liked president obama. about another 30% said they didn't necessarily like him but they at least respected him. in this speech he is going to give to about 1,000 college students is designed to speak directly to the israeli population to see if he can't convince the israeli population that he's right that america has their back, and perhaps that can get more movement out of prime minister netanyahu if president obama is able to rally support from the israeli people themselves. >>bria
